families & littles

The days are long but the years are short

As a mom of 3 little ones my husband and I are often amazed at how fast it is all going by. One minute our daughter was was crawling and with the blink of an eye she's a beautiful 8 year old with so much spunk and sass. Adding 2 wild boys to the mixture and boy oh boy most days all I can do is look and wonder how people do it with more! Life can feel chaotic and overwhelming at times. Often I feel like i'm just moving thru the days and then something happens and stops me in my tracks and i'm reminded that every day matters and the small moments in life become the cherished memories I never want to forget! I'm so thankful for the art of photography that not only can remind us of special memories but draw out so much raw emotion that is unique and special to only us . 

let me love you a little more before you aren’t little anymore 

As moms we are usually the ones taking the photos so every once in a while we need to get in front of a camera and capture those memories with us in it! Many of us put off pictures because we don't look the way we want to remember but time is short. There is no time like the present! When I look back on past sessions of my family I am able to look past all my imperfections and feel what the photo is showing we...THAT'S what I love. Beautiful belly bump, new baby, wild children, or adolescent teens...i'm down for it all! Families are my passion because my family is my entire heart!

How many images will I get?

20-40 images will be delivered depending on the amount of time and session you book me for.

Can family and friends buy prints?

Yes, all images you see will be available for them to purchase as well.

Do you cancel due to bad weather?

I really try to not cancel any sessions because I know the amount of work and planning that goes into something like this. However, I am not unreasonable and want you to love your session so we will work something out. Sometimes just changing the time a bit or location is all that needs to happen.

Do you offer digital images?

YES!!! All sessions come with ALL final edited digital images for you to download, share and print to your hearts content.

What should I wear?

I am here to help! About a month before your session, you will receive my JL Style Guide. This guide will help you get started and think about things that make your session pop! You can also always send me pictures of what you are thinking and I am ALWAYS happy to YAY or respectfully send you in a different direction

We want to do a group shoot with my family and my brothers family as a gift for our parents, can we do that?

You bet you can! I just ask that 2 sessions are booked back to back to give me enough time to photograph each family properly.

Do you Travel?

Yes!!! I serve the surrounding areas of Kennewick, Spokane, and Seattle (I have family in Seattle and Spokane so I love to visit). Anywhere outside of those areas will have an additional travel fee (please email me for specific pricing)

the experience

I want you to ENJOY this time in front of the camera where you are away from all of life's distractions long enough to see the sweet way your babies look at you.
